Jay Briscoe will forever be known as one of the greatest tag team wrestlers in the world. His unmatched passion to put his body on the line for the sake of the fans’ entertainment made him a fan favorite. Jay had a reputation for delivering electrifying performances and leaving audiences on the edge of their seats. His relentless drive and dedication have helped him create a lasting legacy.
Sadly, Jay Briscoe’s career and life were cut short due to a tragic accident that took place when his car collided with a truck. While his two daughters survived with major injuries, Jay and the driver of the other vehicle passed away in the accident.
The tragic news of his passing sent shockwaves throughout the wrestling community and the tributes started pouring in. WWE even paid tribute to Jay during an episode of NXT.
Tony Khan did the same on a recent episode of Dynamite when he allowed Jay’s brother Mark Briscoe to face Jay Lethal in the main event. The match was watched by the whole roster who came out to pay tribute to Jay Briscoe once the match was over.
The Elite recently released the emotional backstage footage from the tribute on their Being The Elite series. In the video, several AEW stars can be seen hugging Mark as they give their condolences.
It’s very disheartening to see a wrestler as young as Jay Briscoe leave us all too soon. We at Ringside News send our deepest condolences to the family in this difficult time.
